MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Glasgow Film Festival (GFF) aims to be one of Europe’s top audience-focussed film festivals renowned for an international programme of the world’s best films alongside a dynamic fusion of cross-sector events and commissions. We welcomed nearly 40,000 cinema lovers to our screenings in 2013.

Including both the Glasgow Short and Youth Festivals, GFF truly offers our audiences 'cinema for all' and provides a high profile platform for film professionals working across both feature and short form projects.

Perfectly placed in February for spring and summer releases, GFF has launched some of the best new films to UK's film press and cinema market.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Glasgow Film Festival is the third largest film festival in the UK boasting over 39,000 admissions in 2013.

Our approach is to put the filmmaker and the audience at the heart of our programme and establish quality of opportunities for both. We view the Glasgow Film Theatre (GFT) as the hub of the Festival whilst aiming to reach out across the city to support curatorial talent in both individuals and other organisations.

The Festival is a multi-venue, multi-partnership event which takes inspiration from and enhances the global image of Glasgow as an exciting place to live or to visit. It aims to exhibit the best of world cinema and moving image content; expand and diversify the audience for non-mainstream films; showcase and nurture new emerging talent; promote collaboration between appropriate media, platforms and sectors and ultimately promote the city as a national and international centre for the arts. The Festival aims to build year round audiences for the moving image medium.

Please note: submissions of short films under 5 minutes are accepted manually via our website - www.glasgowfilm.org/festival

The ‘Best International Short Film’ award is selected by an international jury from all successful international submissions.
 
The 'Best Scottish Short Film' award is selected by a jury from all successful Scottish submissions (a film is considered Scottish if two or more of the core creative team (writer, director, producer) are permanently based in Scotland, or if the film has been primarily funded by Scottish organisations).

Audience Awards will be presented in both international and Scottish competitions.

Films under 5 minutes duration are eligible for a reduced submission fee.

GFF regards a short film as 45 minutes or under and a feature film as over 45 minutes.

The final selection of all films presented at the Festival and their placement in the programme is the responsibility of the Co-directors.

We will not consider previously submitted work unless it has been considerably re-edited/re-shot. Please include a cover letter with details. If we already viewed your film as a rough cut last year, we usually will not consider it for the following year. Please remember this before submitting, as you will not be entitled to a refund.

If you would like to submit an online screening link for your film, please contact us directly. While some of our programming team are happy to view online, we would prefer to receive DVD screener submissions.
